As a developer you will have strong skills in web development and be willing to work within multidisciplinary agile teams of developers, designers and researchers focused on one or more projects.

You will provide technical leadership, working closely with delivery managers and the wider team to ensure high quality code is delivered in line with the project goals and delivery cycles.

We expect you to be familiar with modern frameworks and languages, as well as working practices such as TDD, continuous integration, continuous delivery and DevOps.

Desirable Skills:
